How To Install Mac Os Sierra And Ios 10 Public Beta
On July 7, the first public version of macOS Sierra and iOS 10 Public Beta were released. Anyone can install it right now. I note that Apple has slightly changed the way macOS is installed.
We go to the site https://beta.apple.com. In the upper right corner, click the Login button.
Log in with your Apple ID and password.
If you have two-factor authorization enabled, use your phone to go through authorization by following the instructions in your browser.
Go to the “Register your devices” tab.
We see two installation instructions for macOS and iOS 10 in it, which switch through special buttons:
Step 4A Install macOS Sierra
The installation principle has been simplified a bit. After creating a backup in Time Machine (if you use it) you need to click the “Enter code” button. You will be transferred to the Mac App Store and macOS Sierra will boot (and then install). The second option is to take the activation code and enter it in the Mac App Store, where all the promo codes are entered.
Step 4B. Install iOS 10 Public Beta
An iOS device will need to install a special profile. Button will be available on iDevice Download profile.
After installing the profiles go to: Settings-BasicSoftware Update and upgrade to iOS 10 Public Beta over Wi-Fi.
Public Beta FAQ
Can I roll back the public beta of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra?
Yes. Rollback is possible until iOS 9. The rollback option will be available until the release of the final version of iOS 10 ( one to two weeks after this event). macOS Sierra can be rolled back to the latest versions of OS X (Mavericks, Lion, etc.). In both cases, it is desirable to have a backup made before the firmware.

If interested, then bet, just remember:
